David Lemieux told Relix:
“One thing most people will be seeing for the first time is a complete version of “Bird Song.” There was a version that was filmed but not included in the cut of the movie that we’ve all been watching for the last 25 or so years. That’s been restored all from the 16mm film negative and the “Bird Song,” I’ve always considered the best ever. And that’s saying a lot, especially those 1972-73 versions that really soared... And this one is just so inspired and engaged and the band is just really, really lighting it up. And then to be able to see them play this in the hot sun is just such a spectacular thing, to see the whole thing and see how the band interacts visually, the sonic cues, the looks they give each other when they’re doing things, it’s just a really wonderful piece.”

However, Lemieux failed to mention that the pole-dancing guy comes out from behind the pole during Bird Song! In fact, you might say he's the star of the song, he gets so much camera time...

Lemieux also failed to mention Sing Me Back Home...
